A few Noro scarves

I just finished the purple one last night. The lace one was finished a few months ago but I never blogged about it.

Details: (L to R)

Child's Rainbow Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson
Knitted on size 9's with Noro Kureyon, two skeins of the same colorway: 148 A
I love this scarf, it's knit in mistaken rib stitch and was a great little break between rows of my Swallow Tail Shawl. (more on that later).

Lopi Lace Scarf from Weekend Kniting, pattern by Pam Allen
I can't remember which needles I knit this with but it's 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden Lite color 2014 A
Another great scarf, very wearable though the colors go from very earthy tones to very bright blues and pinks. The lace had disappeared in this photo, but it shows up pretty well, and was good practice for me considering that lace used to really scare me!

Does it look bigger?
As you can see, I'm less afraid of lace now. Instead my fear has been replaced by a healthy respect for the entire lace-knitting process.
I think this looks beautiful, but one row took me an hour to tink, do, tink again, and re-do during lunch yesterday. I think I've had three headaches due to this shawl but it has captured all of my attention and passion. I LOVE THIS KNIT.
I think it's incredibly beautiful, and it's hard to work on anything else right now.

Great scarves! Keep up the great work on the Swallowtail too! Can't wait to see it completed!

Looking good Chicky, I have a few swanky Vickery scarves in my collection...a must have for any fashionista.

Ah, yes, the secondary project. It has saved many of us from giving up on the primary project, no?
